taking time to check the dial

The ones I’m currently most in love with - the Daytona and the MR-G.
Nothing expensive! I have deliberately collected a few cheap but reliable Quartz watches, that should not attract unwanted attention, yet reliably tell me the time and date. One simple Chronograph if I need the ability to take a simple timing of something not too critical. The Slazenger watches were just £7.99 a piece, the Corgeut was just under £11 on an eBay Snipe bid and the most expensive is the Casio Duro Diver. I can travel with 3 or 4 of those and not worry too much and look quite presentable IMHO no matter what I wear I think.
As of now, I think the Blue Dial Slazenger and the Casio are going to get the most wrist time. Strange to think that is this company the Casio is the most expensive watch and it was still under £60 even with the SS Bracelet I fitted!

Currently debating this very question for an upcoming trip to the western US. It'll be hot, and there will be outdoor adventure. The Suunto Core is my real adventure watch, and the only one I would risk getting in close contact with rocks. I want to take my Casio Oceanus for easy time zone hopping and to see if it picks up the radio signal when closer to Ft. Collins. I don't know how the bracelet will feel when I'm in 100F+ temperatures for hours though, so I'm considering swapping it with my Amphibia which works on a perlon or NATO. I don't really want to take three watches for ten day trip.
Already did my travels and I only have this on my wrist...
